Makers of Vijay’s Master had planned to release the film on April 9, however with the nationwide curfew imposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the next 21 days due to the Coronavirus spread, it is not going to happen.
As per a latest report, makers are in a fix and have no other option but to push the release of Master to May or June. Theaters in India are closed until April 15 while the US government too will soon close down its theatres for 6 to 12 weeks.

Recently, an image of Vijay’s ID card in the film has been making rounds revealing that Vijay’s character is named John Durairaj aka JD. It also reveals that he is the Dean of Student Association in St. Jeffery’s College of Arts & Science in the film.
While it was already known that Vijay plays a college professor in Master, now an image has been making rounds revealing that Vijay’s character is named John Durairaj aka JD, and that he is the Dean of Student Association in the movie.
Besides, from the lyrics of Polakkatum Para Para song in the movie it has been said that Vijay Sethupathi’s character might be named as Bhavani.
The audio launch for Master was a low-key affair, held for a comparatively smaller gathering made up of the film’s cast and crew members in Chennai. In his speech, the star alluded to the mix-up during the Bigil audio launch when fans had complained of being mistreated, and also to the coronavirus pandemic, and apologised for not being able to accommodate more fans while also thanking them for their support.
“I didn’t want my fans to go through the same ordeal as the last time. I’m as disappointed as all of you. Also, keeping in mind the health issues, we’ve kept it small,” he said.
